Exactly what the title says. She appeared one day during the winter term exams, as a sketch made with a red pencil, as I was grading a very high pile of essays.

You think she's cute? Well, don't like her too much, students...

And now that I've finally coloured her (messy work, yes, I know), I've been wondering for a while if I should update her in Elfwood with an adult rating (for, hem, extremely violent mature issues? especially around holidays?) Well, hope that's okay with a general audience rating...

On a side note, I just realised that I'm trying to upload a fairy drawn on lined paper. I hope that, too, will be all right ...

Has she a friend for marking maths. I could have used one this summer.

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Now, that's an idea... Although I don't imagine the maths spirit -maths god? -whatever- to look anything like a fairy, even a bat-winged one. I'll tell you if I find him!"

*snickers* She's adourable.. lol looks like she's compltemplating the grade. I can say she's cute, I'm no longer a student *thank god! lol* Loved the comment about her being on lined paper, but I somehow dont' think they minded too much... Awesome work, keep it up 1 Oh yeah *first comment wiggle*

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Thanks! I find she's cute, too. But I'm at the good end of the correcting pen..."

Ahh... so this is who i have to blame for my dysmal mark in King Lear? Ohh... Having abnormally violent urges against the fairy. Seriously though, very nice art and a fabulous idea. Huzzah!

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Heh, probably! I bet she was sitting on the teacher's shoulder and whispering him/her murderous things...

Thanks a lot!"

Oh so THATS where all the excess red ink came from on my english paper... Well, usually i think im on good terms with her, but the math spirit... *shudders* Even more excess red ink!
Well, anyway, enough with my woes and worries about school. Great job, great idea, and great colors! 2 Thanks for creating this little fairy! Definatly orginal!

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Heh, math spirit... *shivers* And thank you!"

This is awesome! I feel a special affinity for her, as I'm an English teacher's aide this year. All of your work is amazing! Keep it up!

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Thanks a lot! Yeah, it helps, thinking there a grading fairy somewhere, doesn't it 12"

Well, I love math (I'm a sick person, I know, I know), so I think the math spirit and I are on pretty good terms, but I'll try to be good to the essay fairy for you.

:-) Hélène Bruneton replies: "Thank you!

You know, now that I can do maths only when I need them, I feel sort of okay with them 12 And I'm sure the essay fairy and the maths demon are good friends, so I'm sure everything will be all right for you..."

Ha! I can relate to her, now that I’m teaching at university (but don’t tell my students, it might scare the little dears ...)!
